Thank Jesus, my son is changed

O Lord, open my lips,
That my mouth may declare Your praise.

Psalm 51:15

Don`t know who prayed for my son, 13 years old, but suddenly his gaming addiction has changed for the better, he seems to be pushed in the right way, he is doing his work for school, doing sports and he started to help me a lot with housework ! :smiley:

His change is tremendous and I want to give thanks to Jesus and to all of you who may have prayed for us!

And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

:pray:

@Ann1 Great to hear of the change in your son! Miracles do happen and all praise the Miracle Worker indeed!

You made mention your son is active in sports now. If you’d like, I shared a circuit training program with another member who’s son was in need of something to curb his gaming activities and get into working out more. I’d be happy to give you the workout. I made it for a woman I went to high school with who had limited access to workout equipment, and limited time in a day to do anything. I never have heard back from her since so I either killed her, or she hates me so much for giving her this routine. I don’t know. But, I’d be happy to give it out if you wish to share with your son? (No, no one has to pay for this).

It is so great to hear that somewhere, somehow and in some way, God rolled up His sleeves and showed you what He would do.

[EDIT=added insight] You don’t have to accept the offer, btw. I just thought I’d offer a helping hand as such. Don’t want you to think I was pressuring you into something.

Thank you Jon. Is it an online-training?

Not exactly. You can print this out and stick it to a wall or the fridge. It’s strictly a “you have to want to do it” kind of program. You against the clock. For most of the exercises it’s 20 seconds exercise, 10 seconds rest and you do this for 5 - 10 minutes at a time. There are YouTube videos that demonstrate some of what I wrote down and you could always workout watching those. In my next post, I’ll just give ya he info for the exercise routine and if you like it, sweet! If not, eh, you had something to look at instead of any bad news for a few minutes lol.

This is an easily modifiable workout routine. After you go through the program “as is” once, you can then mix the workouts around, increase or decrease the intensity as you wish, add weight or resistance to build more opportunities for weight loss, muscle tone, increased metabolism, and increased energy.

Remember to breathe properly, and keep your stomach tight (suck in that gut, and chest out, soldier!) when exercising. It will help keep your core stable when working out, and make sure there is no chance of hurting your back, stomach, chest with the workouts.

Recovery means to “jog in place” or just keep your feet moving so you don’t let your heart rate go down during the exercising. If you have questions on what these workouts are, or how to do them, you can find them on youtube or in a search engine. Many exercises have multiple names.

You may want to print this out and paste up the exercises as a cheat sheet of sorts.

  • Each “set” is meant to be used for 5-6 days then go to the next one. Rest for one day at least. Once you’ve completed the routine as indicated once, you can do different sets through the week (maintaining one day rest).

  • Critical you heed this warning. ONLY DO A SET ONE TIME IN A DAY!

I promise you, he will be exhausted after the first minute and a half. So, in the event you need to change it so it’s 10 seconds exercise and 30 seconds recovery…do it. This is just a blueprint for routines, you change it as you need. Don’t need anyone collapsing and dying because they are trying to exercise. Just keep the exercises the same.
